Monitoring of Chlorophyll in Water Reservoirs Using Satellite Data
The statistical relationship between Landsat sensor data and the chlorophyll concentration in Ivankovo reservoir was studied. A regression relationship describing the dependence of the pixel values of satellite images on the in situ measured (using electronic spectroscopy) chlorophyll concentration in water and allowing an analysis of the spatial distribution of the reservoir chlorophyll concentration was found. The trophic status, amount of phytoplankton biomass, and primary production were estimated based on the chlorophyll concentration data.
